Liverpool 'strong favourites' for €25m Serie A star after 'bid received'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly frontrunners to sign Roma striker Mirko Vucinic, who could become available in the summer.

According to talkSPORT, the Reds are 'strong favourites' for the 27-year-old, although Roma remain unwilling to sell during the January transfer window - but they have received bids for his services.

When asked about the reported interest of Liverpool, Vucinic's agent Alessandro Lucci said: "The club have stated he is not for sale.

"Although we have received some bids the club will not be considering any offers. At the end of the season we will make a decision on his future."

Valued at €25 million by, Vucinic is one the most highly-regarded forwards in Europe and it would be a major coup if Liverpool could land him in the summer.


However, Liverpool are keen to add goalscoring reinforcements to their ranks before the winter window closes on Monday and are working desperately to bring fresh blood to Anfield.

Their no.1 target remains Ajax star Luis Suarez, but his protracted move has hit a snag after the Dutch club told Liverpool they must pay almost €30 million for his signature.

Liverpool, however, are thought to have tabled a bid of around €12.7 million for the Uruguayan and face a difficult final few days of the window as they search for a resolution.

PSV Eindhoven hotshot Ola Toivonen and FC Utrecht sensation Ricky van Wolfswinkel have also been linked with moves to Liverpool as they scour Europe for a potential strike partner for Anfield star Fernando Torres.
